(890 a) Seicercus burkii whistleri Ticehurst.
The Simla Black-browed Flycatcher-Warbler.
Seicercus burkii burkii, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. ii, p. 487 (part.).
Seicercus burkii whistleri, ibid. vol. viii, p. 643.
This bright, pale race of burkii is found from the North-West Frontier to Garhwal and the Simla States.
The only person to take its nest, so far as has been recorded, is Whymper, who sent me a clutch of eggs with the following note:—
“The nest was globular in shape and externally constructed of loosely put together grass, but inside it was beautifully made of small bits of moss, all smoothed and neatly rounded off. This was on a grass-covered bank in mixed forest at about 11,000 feet elevation in Garhwal.”
The nest was taken on the 27th June and contained four white eggs, of the usual type and texture, which measured 15.4 x 13.0, 15.4 x 12.6, 15.6 x 13.0 and 16.0 x 12.3 mm.
